A Note on Procrustean Rotation in Exploratory Factor Analysis: A Computer Intensive Approach to Goodness-of-Fit Evaluation.
Raykov, Tenko; Little, Todd D.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v59 n1 p47-57 Feb 1999
Describes a method for evaluating results of Procrustean rotation to a target factor pattern matrix in exploratory factor analysis. The approach, based on the bootstrap method, yields empirical approximations of the sampling distributions of: (1) differences between target elements and rotated factor pattern matrices; and (2) the overall least-squares fit measure assessing similarity between the two matrices. Contains 17 references. (Author/SLD)
